The event

Are you looking to start a farm? Do you have plans to begin selling a food product? Are you a couple years into operating your farm or food business and could benefit from refining your business plan? Join a small cohort of beginning farmers to learn from topic experts and get paired with a farm mentor for the series.

Through weekly webinars with topic experts and one-on-one meetings with mentors, participants will learn the key components of starting a business with the goal of creating a new or refined business plan.
